Oh yeah, all excited for "Monsters University" that has been riding a wave of buzz thanks to the official title and director getting announced last week? Well, get ready to wait. Disney has moved the film from a fall 2012 bow to June 21, 2013 where it will square off against...well, nobody just yet. 2013 is just a twinkle in the eye for many studios at this point. But don't fret! Another movie has replaced "Monsters University" on the calendar to make sure you get your animation fill.

"Reboot Ralph" (yeah, we barely remember this one either) will now land on November 2, 2012 where it too faces no competition. For now. This project has been knocking around for a while and was initially known under the other alliterative moniker "Joe Jump." The story follows a video game character who has been left behind as technology moves forward. Other than that, details are pretty scarce but it sounds like a pretty promising premise (how's that for alliteration?).

No word yet on who is directing or voicing "Reboot Ralph" but with the film about a year and a half away, we're sure that news will be coming down pretty soon. But at the very least, we're glad that an original piece of work and not another sequel is getting into the queue. [Box Office Mojo]
